Transgender Woman named to Gov Wolf's cabinet
A Transgender woman is assigned male at birth (downstairs; the plumbing) but has a female gender identity (upstairs; the brain). Like all variants to heterosexuality, one's gender identity will lead to who the person will be attracted to.
Transgender people experience pain at all levels. They are often ridiculed and isolated. The surgery to change their sex is long and involved.
So please take a moment and honor Dr. Levine in her struggle to become who she really is. And thank you Governor Wolf for your equanimity in hiring. You have made a bold statement for the good and have led well by example.
